It’s envious how their parents always have such a good time with them; laughing, singing, dancing, debating.  My children’s mom and

What I Love

‘Do what you love‘ is an advice that is becoming so popular I can’t even remember what the advice before it was. ‘Do what makes money?’  ‘Do what your parents say?’  ‘Do what you studied?’ ‘Do Law/Engineering/Medicine?’  They all just  so out of place and absurd.

David Odunlami: The Future?

It’s a new month! It’s the month of March and I’m amazed at how well I’ve kept to my promise to write every day.

I’ve retroactively made this a mission to show myself that one does not necessarily need to be ‘inspired’ to create art (as most artist like to think). I
